I think everyone was very satisfied after this meal. It is truly one of those feel good meals that satisfies hunger and nourishes the body.
Oh, a slice of pickle makes every veggie burger a stunner! Just love the tang and the crunch. The pretzel bun (store-bought) is not mandatory but it sure does taste fantastic with the veggie burger - that's coming from a pretzel lover though.
